2bm selects Iceotope as data centre liquid cooling partner

2bm and Iceotope enter partnership to deliver fast, flexible deployment to the data centre market


Sheffield, UK, 27th February 2017: Iceotope, the liquid cooling company, and 2bm, a data centre design and build provider, have today announced a strategic partnership to offer highly efficient and flexible data centres to react to ever-growing technologies and new market demands.

The partnership brings together Iceotope’s cutting-edge cooling technology and 2bm’s expertise in the design, build and refurbishment of data centres to deliver faster solutions with better efficiency and lower costs.

A data centre built around Iceotope’s liquid cooling technology significantly reduces infrastructure, fitting more IT into the same footprint and saving up to 40 percent of the total cost of ownership – bringing huge advantage for 2bm’s customers.

Working with innovative solutions, 2bm recognise that liquid cooling will enable new technologies such as edge computing; modular data centres; and efficient data centre designs.

Mark King, Managing Director of 2bm, comments: “The global server industry is growing rapidly year on year, consuming ever-increasing levels of energy. At 2bm we encourage our clients to consider sustainable cooling options within any design and build solution we provide, especially where space is at a premium.

As architects of data centre changes, we also have a role to play in reducing a data centres carbon footprint.”

Peter Hopton, Founder and Technology Director at Iceotope, comments: “Partnering with a forward-thinking data centre provider as 2bm provides an excellent opportunity to our company.

The need for flexibility and scalability is critical to operate in a today’s digital economy – and we believe that liquid cooling is the only way do it. We are very excited to embark on a journey with an innovative and like-minded company as 2bm.”

2bm are demonstrating Iceotope’s liquid cooling technology at Data Centre World on 15-16 March. You can request a meeting here or find them on Stand L10.
